Shownotes for episode 23 - Holiday Special

This is not a typical podcast for us. The last week has not yielded
much in the way of Java news, and so we decided to do a geek session,
just talking about tech in general, podcasts, hype from this year,
predictions for next year, that sort of thing. There is a little java
sprinkled in there, but there is also a lot of other stuff. If you only
want to hear the java stuff - skip this one, on the other hand if you
are interested in our non-java personas, dive straight in and enjoy.

Shownotes for Episode #009 - Interview with Josh Bloch of Google

Josh Bloch is a well known Java visionary and speaker. In addition to his numerous contributions to the JDK, which include the Java util collections library, he has served on a number of JSRs such as 166 (Concurrency Utilities), 175 (Metadata, or annotations) and 201 (Enumerations, Autoboxing, the new for loops and static importing). Josh has also written two books on Java: "Effective Java" (which won a jolt award), and "Java Puzzlers" (the latter with Neal Gafter). He currently works for Google having moved there from Sun after the release of Java 5.

Please Note: We know the audio quality of this episode is perhaps not the best, but the quality of the content more than makes up for it. Sometimes you are simply limited by what Skype can do. Everything is audible, and the volume is as even as we could make it.

Shownotes for Java Posse #5 - Interview with Chuck Hill about WebObjects
  • Good Blog:
    • Jon Rentzch
    • "If you're already on Mac OS X, that means WebObjects is effectively free. If you weren't, just buy a Mac mini for $499 and pretend WO's price has been dropped by $200 and they're now throwing in a server (grin)."

We have had a lot of feedback requesting more information for Java beginners,
and there is enough material here for a little beginners section of the news:

  • The Java Posse would like to thank:
    • Chingon with Malaguena Salerosa from the Kill Bill 2 soundtrack for today's theme music
    • for podcast hosting and bandwidth
    • for feed redirection and stats
    • Kirsty Doherty for the Java Posse artwork
    • And all of you for listening

Many people have asked about iTunes for the Java Posse, and the submission is in so hopefully we will be listed in the directory any day now. In the meantime, there is a simple way to get iTunes to pick up the Java Posse podcast now:

First, copy the following link into your clipboard:
Then open iTunes, and in the Advanced menu select Subscribe to Podcast...

In the window that comes up, paste the link from above and hit OK. You should now be subscribed to the Java Posse in iTunes.

While this will work, I would ask anyone who does this to keep an eye on the site for changes, and when the iTunes entry is finally up to switch to that, as iTunes measures the popularity of podcasts only through it's own directory and will not pick up the numbers using the link provided here.
